Liam McCabe sinks his teeth into Marty Golden’s ass --- and draws John Quaglione’s blood --- Doctors and Scientists Mystified*…..
GOP candidate Liam McCabe’s
call for GOP State Senator Marty Golden to apologize for his “FAT BOY”
remark about Democrat Justin Brannan included >>> a call-out aimed at McCabe’s “fellow”
GOP candidate John Quaglione, at whose campaign event Golden’s remark was made, and who also works for Golden
Here’s the real “money shot”: “…. John Quaglione should
have been the person to say what I just did but decided to be silent. Look, if
you can't speak up when your voice is needed then we have to wonder how you
will stand up to Bill de Blasio and the City Council Speaker…..”
-- In Liam McCabe's Statement of 6/12/17 on Facebook
At about 7:00 PM last evening, Liam McCabe posted the following statement on his Facebook page at “Liam for City Council”:
“Liam for City Council [@ 7:00PM, 6/12/17]
Spending the last few days campaigning in the district many people want to know how I feel about the off color remark Marty Golden made toward Justin Brannan. To be honest I thought I would have heard more from ANY of my opponents both Democrats and Republicans but there has been silence. I'm shocked no one has said what needed to be said so let me say it.
Marty Golden is a well respected and effective public servant that has worked hard for this community but he owes Justin Brannan for City Council a simple apology.
John Quaglione should have been the person to say what I just did but decided to be silent. Look, if you can't speak up when your voice is needed then we have to wonder how you will stand up to Bill de Blasio and the City Council Speaker.
Justin Brannan, could have let the comment speak for itself but instead was quick to call out Senator Golden and score cheep political points. That to me is the pot calling the kettle black. Especially since Mr. Brannan has thrown around locker room talk himself and has have never apologized for his own insensitivity.
I myself am far from perfect, I have said things I regret and used language I shouldn't have but when I make a mistake I will own up to it and if I need to address an off color remark, I will do it.
That's who I am.”
New plateau reached in 2017 as one candidate for City Council raises an issue with a GOP incumbent State Senator, and then uses it to go after one of his own Republican intra-party opponents for that council nomination
Like Ceasar, Liam McCabe has decided that it was his time to cross the Rubicon. And like the Rome of pre-Christian times, Marty Golden's cabal in Bay Ridge is the nexus of Republican governance in all of Brooklyn. Make no mistake, Liam's statement means that he intends to be the conquering hero vis a vis the GOP City Council Primary.**
Oddly, Liam's message appeared on John Q's Facebook space
Whether it was a calculated raid by Liam, or a quirk of Facebook algorithms, there is no way that Liam's statement should have been allowed to appear in any of Q's social media spaces.
Unless, of course, JQ saw this as an opportunity to spring a trap on his rambunctious adversary; with a real "Ides of March-Forum Welcome" for anybody with so much ambition.
I guess we'll have to see how that all plays out in due course.
* BTW, just kidding about the “Doctors and Scientists…” part.....
**Left inchoate is whether Liam will accept the golden laurel crown as Emperor of the Brooklyn GOP; and, more important, are there enough [or any] Republican leaders ready to offer that crown to Liam McCabe, either in 2017 or the future.
